Death Pool 2010

If you’ve been following my death pool posts over the last few years, a New Years Tradition, you will know that a good year one can almost guarantee an 90% failure rate, so there is a better chance that someone on my list will not die. However in 2009 I did slightly better guessing correctly with: Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Farrah Fawcett, Ted Kennedy and Soupy Sales. I thought the rest were shoe-ins.

OK, I know you’ve all been waiting all year for this years list so here goes:

Annette Funicello
Bob Dole
Woody Allen
Joe Namath
Peter Max
Jimmy Carl Black
Sophia Loren
Elizabeth Edwards
Barbara Walters
Dock Severensen
Dick Clark
Micky Rooney
Betty White

Oh, yeah, for sure I’ve been waiting all year for this!
Such a morbid endeavour. Amusing, but morbid... ;)

At this point, I don't think Dick Clark could die.

Dick Clark DID die. He is just being animated by a bad case of intestinal worms.

V.W= "thume" : a kinder, gentler thump on the head at the hands of a not so bad bully on the bus

Mark, it is time the trio are reunited.

Beth, you know I've been doing this for several years now and you are still shocked by it and sick day photos?

Darev and Auntie have been reading too much science fiction.

Amy, sorry, afraid so.

F. Lee Dang, how did that get by me. You and I are probably the only two here who knows who he is anyway.

Critter, only the good go young ; )

Joe Namath? Say it aint so! Broadway Joe is an icon and one of my all time faves.

I was also unaware Soupy Sales died.

Barbara Walters - No way. Not gonna happen.

It's odd you said Betty White and Sophia Loren. Similar thoughts crossed my mind when I saw interviews with them recently. Not that they looked like death, but that their times were near.
